Hmmmm. What can I sell to get some extra money? I want one.
Emptied my piggy bank almost completely just to get the trailer + shipping. Being broke, combined with travelling over thanksgiving and trying to actually find one in stock somewhere...yes, I waited a while.

Yep.
I've been watching this thread for a while, now.
Looks like Mr. Fisherman was on the original list of five to receive the first batch,
but I haven't heard from him about it yet.

This looks like the shit for that Colorado trip, eh?



Anybody figured out how to make this work on my 990 yet, so I don't have to do the research ??

That's the plan Jeff. CO will be a perfect trip with this. We can even bring ice with us.

Special thanks to Ken at Adventure Machines for the big KTM Axle dimensions... http://www.advmachines.com

Special thanks to Brian at KTM Country for ordering me up the nuts required and letting me use their KTM 990 ADV for some pictures.

Uh Oh....
Damn you,...... my "list" just keeps getting bigger and bigger.

You're VERY near the top NOW, Mr. Bracket.
But, the Rekluse is still beating you out, for now, anyway

So do I just replace my Axle Nut with one you can provide? And I'm good to go?

For the KTM and Husaberg Bikes:
You Replace your stock rear axle nut (shown at left) with one I provide (shown at right).



The 640cc and smaller bikes use a 20mm Nut, the 690cc and larger use a larger Nut. I have both. The axle length varies with some models so the hitch width is bike dependent.

For the DR650 and DRZ400 bikes, some years came with a Castle Nut and Cotter Pin.

If your bike has this castle nut setup, I have the Fuji style nut you can replace it with.


Here is the mounting method for 1987-2007 KLR's

Start with this:


Remove this:


Now looks like this:


Trade old for new:


Install New: Mirror image on other side, two brackets total.


Leave this on at all times if you like, should stay out of the way:


Now you can pull a Moto-Mule Trailer:


Closeup:


Instead of using one long "bolt", the moto-mule trailer is held on with two short bolts, one on each side on the KLR.

Rode around 100 miles with the Moto Mule today and i'm very impressed. Everything from 75mph interstate riding to single track to mud puddles deep enough to totally drown it - I never knew it was back there. Only time I notice it was when I had to turn around on a trail today that was pretty narrow. Took me a few seconds longer than it would have normally.

Pics...lots of em'!

Christening...after a muddy downhill slide and muddy hill climb...


After the drowning...




Did bash my license plate. I crossed a pretty steep ditch and it must've been then. I plan to move it up further out of the way soon...


After a clean up...


Who has the REAL trailer around here?

How water tight are those action packers?Did it get wet inside?I pack everything in dry bags, even if it's going into a trailer,but that won't stop standing water in the box from getting in the bags.

Evan,

Love the pictures! Glad to see you are using the trailer
I don't see the clips in the handles of the ActionPacker. Did the lid fly off on you at all today? Some of them snap together tighter than others. I do recommend something in the handles to keep them from comming open.

Oh, wait, after looking again, I can see you do have at least one of the clips on there. My bad.... Looks great!

Yee Ha

Just got home with my new trailer. Mike thanks a bunch man, schweet deal. Had a cold but fun ride home. Went to springfield to get her, came up I5 to get home and got stopped twice by other riders. Get ready buddy, I think your gonna have some orders soon. Too bad one was a beemer and he is going to rack his brain for a way to make it fit. Don't know how that would work? Mike you got some pictures before I left, I haven't taken any yet. So I'll let you post them up. Thanks again Did great on the way home and reached 90mph and still didn't even notice it was back there.

I got an Action Packer tonight (my other local Lowes had them). Got it mounted up. Tomorrow I'll get it mounted to the KLR and go for a ride.

No mud/water from the trail ride.
After pressure washing there was about a tablespoon of water inside. I was imagining some of that spray in rubber could be used on the inside of the lid to make s seal...

Headed down the trail I had both attached. Unfortunately the one in the front had disappeared by the time we stopped (probably came off when it contacted my license plate).

Was thinking some sort of carabiner (spelling?) might do the trick. Obviously a luggage lock would work (what it's designed for) but don't want to bother with keys.
